Tips & Tricks: Removing A SIM Card Easily From Your BlackBerry

One of the annoying steps you need to take to switch a BlackBerry device is to remove the SIM card. Since the 8700 series the SIM card has gotten harder to remove and requires some finesse or fancy finger work to get out. The 8800 gets my award for being the hardest to remove.

I either use my wife’s tweezers (don’t tell her) or a pencil eraser to massage the SIM card out but TimB gave me a great idea on how to make things even easier. Just cut off a small piece of scotch tape and place it on the protruding portion of the SIM card. Then just pull slightly up and out and your done!

Let me know if you have any other quick and dirty BlackBerry maintenance tips! I am still looking for one to clean my trackball on my Bold.

  1. I find no issue at all on my 8320. Though after 1 year the SIM door is less tight than it used to be.

  2. I actually sued to have a very tough time with my 8700 until i realized how stupid i was. If you notice the little black tab on the 8700 that seems like it stops the sim card from easily being pulled out. All you have to do is push that down and the sim card will slide out like butter.
